Baptism Preparation

Congratulations on this exciting new season of life!
Our St. John’s Community is here to walk with you in preparing for your child’s baptism
and your family’s ongoing journey of faith.

“Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213

The preparation process for baptism includes:

  • Initial visit with Megan Rodriguez to discuss your desire to have your child baptized into the Catholic faith and plans for attending Baptism Formation.
  • Attending a Baptism Formation Session if this is your first child to be baptized at St. John’s. Upcoming dates for 2022 are posted below.
  • Celebrating the Sacrament of Baptism at one of the weekend Masses (we do not have baptisms during Lent).

2022 Baptism Formation Dates
All Baptism Formation classes are Tuesday evenings from 6:00-7:15pm in the Fellowship Area.
Babies are welcome to attend with you.

“With Baptism we become children of God in his only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Rising from the waters of the baptismal font, every Christian hears again the voice that was once heard on the banks of the Jordan River: ‘You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.'”

Pope John Paul II “Christifideles Laici”

If you are an adult or have a child over the age of 7 desiring to know more about baptism please contact Formation Director, Megan Rodriguez, to learn more about The Rite of Christian Initial for both Adults and Children (RCIA/RCIC).
